I'd say it's appropriately priced. Lets take an average price on an '10 Focus right now that's priced around $15K. Add in the Bigger and All Around Disc Brakes as about a $1K add on. Add in 19" Wheels and Tires for another $1K. Add in the new center dash area with the screen and all for around $500 or so. Then add in the upgraded interior which looks amazing for about $1K. All this leaves you about $500 short roughly of the $20,000 Price Tag for a bigger car, so in my opinion it's priced right.
Yeah, you could easily put the wheels at $1,500 too...I guess I haven't priced a new Focus in a while. Looks like I'll be trading in the H3 perhaps, since it hasn't done anything for me with the inch of snow we've had in STL
